Summary/Abstract: Maybe Finland is the clearest example that nations are not born. People have the same nationality only and only if they share the same culture, especially if they recognize one another as belonging to the same community, to the same nation. This article approaches the way in which an idea spreads through literature to the people, contributing to the “birth” of the Finnish nation.
